How To Control Gestational Diabetes Through Diet

How To Control Gestational Diabetes Through Diet

How to beat Gestational Diabetes with Food minus Sugar First things first, I am sorry that I have been away for a bit (first time since the inception of this blog), trust me it seemed so long! And while I was away let me just say, I have realized that “Health” is hands-down the number one wealth. Though I am happy to be back, especially to bring this post that is so close to my heart to you, I just can’t cease to ponder about the recent concurrent catastrophic tragedies in Japan brought about by the tsunami. It is hard to miss the humbling truth that no matter how rich or powerful a nation, is miniscule in front of the forces of nature. In spite of the advancement of science and technology, nature time and again has shown man who’s in control. Although it is almost impossible to even fathom the turmoil the Japanese are enduring, my heart goes out to them. I certainly hope and pray for all those at loss and in pain for strength and resilience and count my blessings and hold my family near. The harshest truth of it all however callous it sounds, whatever happens life must go on and isn’t it amazing how it does? This post is dedicated to my dear friend Breva (name changed), on whose suggestion it was born. So you’ve been handed the dreaded verdict. As if pregnancy was not heavy-duty enough to handle, the added sugar on top? Now what? I know pregnancy is not exactly the right time for a bad joke like gestational diabetes, but hey! If there was a litmus test that told us what we are in store for two to three decades later if we don’t wake up to a lifestyle change, bet this one is. I don’t mean to be harsh, only forthright I guess. You got the drift. I have been there, done that. So I’d say, it should rather be “so what?” Three years back, I was sailing Continue reading >>

A Sample Indian Vegetarian Meal Plan for Gestational Diabetes? QUESTION: Can you please provide me with a sample Indian vegetarian meal plan for gestational diabetes? My result shows 88mg/dl with fasting and after 75 gms of glucose consumption ,blood sugar is 218,215 and 148 after 1hr,1 1/2 hrs and 2hrs respectively. I understand your worries, because uncontrolled gestational diabetes could cause your baby to be overweight, or with severe physical malformations (although in rare cases). The only possible way to avoid the complications of gestational diabetes is to keep your blood glucose level within the reference ranges, which I believe you know that are 64.8-104.4 mg/dl. There are three main steps, which you have to follow in purpose to keep your blood glucose level normal: 1. to achieve weight control by diet and exercises, 2. to eat small meals every 3 hours during the day and 3. to forget about eating cake, pancake, chocolate, candies and all the other sweet stuff. In addition, please find the following guidelines on what you may eat during the day. Remember: Being vegetarian or vegan during pregnancy is not something good for your baby, because the meat contains several essential vitamins. However, if you still want to avoid eating meat, talk with your doctor about tablets, which can provide you the needed vitamins.

Ways To Ward Off Gestational Diabetes

Ways To Ward Off Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes, according to experts, is among the main reasons behind the number of overweight babies being born in the state. PUNE: Gestational diabetes, according to experts, is among the main reasons behind the number of overweight babies being born in the state. The incidence of this relatively little known form of diabetes is about 10 to 15 per cent in major cities but less common in the villages. What causes more concern is that women with gestational diabetes are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, and their children are also at higher risk of obesity and diabetes at a young age, says experts. "Often, women with gestational diabetes have no symptoms. However, gestational diabetes may increase the risk of giving birth to an overweight baby as well as the risk of high blood pressure during pregnancy. The chances of these women going in for a Caesarean section are also high," said diabetologist Chittaranjan Yajnik, head of the diabetes unit of KEM hospital. The good news is that gestational diabetes may go away after the baby is born. "However, these women may get gestational diabetes again in subsequent pregnancies," said Yajnik. "It is a definite risk factor for future diabetes. Recently we observed that almost a third of women with gestational diabetes will continue to have diabetes after delivery, and another third could develop it in the next few years. the risk of getting diabetes continues to be high even later. Sudden and unexplained intra-uterine death of the foetus could take place if gestational diabetes remains undiagnosed, though it is rare, Yajnik added. "Classic gestational diabetes affects the mother in late pregnancy and therefore does not lead to any birth defects. However, if diabetes is present before pregnancy it can cause birth defe Continue reading >>

Indian Diet Plan For Gestational Diabetes

Indian Diet Plan For Gestational Diabetes

I was at my OB/GYN’s office last week for my annual check up. This time I happened to take my little one along and my doctor and her medical assistant were so excited to see him grown up. Even my son was super excited and kept waving at them shouting “hi’ every now and then. She was seeing me after the weightloss and she assured that my healthy lifestyle might prevent me from diabetes in the future. She was curious to know what I did to get rid of 26 pounds. You can read about my weightloss journey here. I don’t think you could enjoy this drink during pregnancy. Read and save the recipe for post-pregancy weightloss journey. After the exam, we had a brief conversation about her new patients and that the practice is getting busy with new South Asian patients. That’s when we spoke about gestational diabetes (GD). She mentioned that despite the low body mass index (BMI), most women from India suffer from gestational diabetes. Yes I have seen that despite the low BMI, South Asians are more prone to diabetes and cardiovascular complications. She wanted to connect them with me and my blog as most patients are not ready to accept the fact that they have GD and need to be on a strict menu plan. I can totally understand the mind set of pregnant women. Even I was in the same state – unaccepting, depressed and lost. Even my mom was not “OK” with it. She kept confusing me that if you avoid idly/dosa and rice, your baby will be thin and not healthy. She would also say that she ate so much rice and lot of food during pregnancy and me eating such measured quantities was totally wrong as per her views. But the truth is that, whole grains, vegetables and nuts on a GD diet is going to make your child more healthy. I don’t blame the Indian mom as there is a lot of ignoran Continue reading >>

Your meal plan for diabetes needs to be modified when you are pregnant. The total calories you need are based on your prepregnancy weight, age, activity level, and whether you are carrying more than one baby.

Follow these guidelines for your meal plan during pregnancy. Carbohydrate Inadequate carbohydrate intake can result in low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) for women taking insulin and in ketone production for women who have gestational diabetes. Excessive carbohydrate intake can result in elevated blood sugar levels.

Fresh or frozen vegetables. Limit these carbohydrate foods in your diet: Refined sugar and foods with a high content of refined sugars (sweets) Refined starches, such as highly processed breakfast cereals, instant potatoes, instant rice, or instant noodles Fruit juice Protein If your kidney function is impaired, your protein allowance may be lowered.

Indian Vegetarian Diet For Gestational Diabetes

Indian Vegetarian Diet For Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is defined as glucose intolerance in women who do not have preexisting diabetes but develop high blood sugar levels during their pregnancy. It usually begins at the 24th week of pregnancy, when a woman is not able to make and use all the insulin her body needs for pregnancy. An Indian vegetarian diet is usually cereal-based and high in carbohydrates. However, judicious use of high-quality protein from pulses, beans, seeds, nuts and dairy products, and fiber from vegetables and fruits, can provide a perfect balance to the diabetic meal plan. Video of the Day Diet planning for a woman with gestational diabetes should be done with the help of a registered dietitian or a certified diabetes educator because meal planning will depend on the type of insulin and the time and number of injections, if insulin is needed. Ideally three small to moderate-sized meals with two to four snacks between meals should be consumed. Space the snacks and meal at least two hours apart. A bedtime snack or even a midnight snack is recommended to reduce the hours of fasting. According to the American Dietetic Association Guidelines for Gestational Diabetes diet, carbohydrates need to be distributed throughout the day with frequent feedings and smaller portions. Sufficient intake of carbohydrates is necessary to avoid ketonuria, which occurs when the body burns fat and muscles for energy. Hormonal impact may cause early-morning insulin resistance, so carbohydrates should be limited to 15 to 30 grams for breakfast. Avoid refined carbohydrates in the morning. Lacto-ovo vegetarians can opt for eggs and brown bread, while vegans can choose other protein-rich foods such as pancakes made from chickpea flour and vegetables. Protein foods do not raise post-meal blood glucose levels. Da Continue reading >>
